GameStop’s Steam Wallet Cards Go Live

News & Rumors Other
GameStop’s Steam Wallet Cards Go Live

After hidden code within a Steam beta client release indicated that the so-called Steam Wallet Vouchers were about to see the light of day, and after a report from Kotaku gave us our first glimpse at these wondrous cards, many were curious regarding the possibility of GameStop actually stocking pre-paid Steam Wallet cards.

Well, you need speculate no longer, for GameStop have at last announced the distribution of Steam Wallet voucher cards in GameStop stores all across the United States.

The special Steam Card webpage provides very few details on the vouchers. But maybe details aren’t really needed. You simply buy them, and then use the enclosed keycode to fill up your Steam Wallet (on your PC, of course) with lovely monies. Apparently there will be a $20 card, as well as a $50 card, and they will presumably cost as much as the Steam Wallet dollars offered within. Hopefully this will spice up the Steam trading economy. More details over at Joystiq.

About this Article


  1. Their press release says “today announced the nationwide availability of the Steam Wallet at all __U.S.__ GameStop locations”. Why do you think it will be all around the world?

    • Sorry, my bad. As you might have been able to tell, I only got a hold of that official press release as I was finishing up the article – never got a chance to read it thoroughly.

  2. Finally!

  3. Finally I can purchase games on Steam with cash instead of using a credit card. I really hope it’ll be a straight conversion (i.e., a $20 card gives me $20 in my Steam wallet).

  4. Finally! Mt friend has been searching for months for a gamestop card that’ll work on steam.

  5. Wouldn’t a $60 card make more sense than a $50 card?

  6. HELL YESS!!! I hope it’s in Canada!!! 😀

  7. This is one of the best news I’ve heard in recent times. I do not live in USA, and these cards will be my salvation! But … I’m throwing money at my monitor and nothing happens ….

    • Well, look GameStop up online and see if there’s any stores in your area. They’ve got stores all over the world.

      • Ohhh … They have no store in my country, unfortunately. (for those who are too lazy to go to Gamestop and search, the countries covered are:
        Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States).


  9. Yay, I don’t live in the United States.
